A new train operator will take over an overground train line to improve passenger service.

Transport for London (TfL) has appointed London Overground Rail Operations Ltd (LOROL) to take over the Greater Anglia service, which runs from Liverpool Street to Enfield Town station.

The line is run by TfL and will see the first new London Overground routes and trains arrive on the line in summer 2018.

LOROL will run the line for 17 months in a bid to improve standards for passengers as plans are drawn up for the line.

Trains will be fully cleaned and new trains have been ordered.

The Director of London Rail, Jonathan Fox, who leads TfL’s mainline rail business said: “London Overground is coming to West Anglia and will bring more staff, simpler ticketing and, eventually, brand new trains to these lines. LOROL has a proven record on delivery and I'm pleased that this will now extend to West Anglia.”

LOROL will take over the line from May 2015 until November 2016.

The Lea Valley route from Cheshunt via Tottenham Hale to Stratford remains part of abelliogreateranglia and not LOROL
